How do I compress frap videos?


May 10, 2013
So I am having an awful time figuring this out. I see this youtubers with great looking minecraft videos and I try to make one and this is what I get:

The recording is not the issue. I am recording it in 30fps in fraps with it set in 1280x720p so I should be getting 720p. As usual the problem always lies in compressing. Something I do when compressing screws up the 720p quality. I am trying to stop that from happening. So what is the best way to compress?
load the video into windows movie maker and save it as a youtube video format - will take a long time to load into movie maker - or use winavi
